Horton Heath Academy

Care, Opportunity, Quality

A new school 

Wildern Academy Trust is planning to open a new 4-16 all-through school. It will be built on the key principles of Care, Opportunity and Quality. 'No child left behind'.

Our VisionHorton Heath Academy

Maintaining excellent educational provision:

As an outstanding provider we are confident about our current provision. The last three Ofsted inspections were all graded as outstanding. The Directors believe that Wildern’s excellent track record places it in a strong position to sponsor and establish a further outstanding educational provision.

The key features of the vision for the new school include:

  • 'No child left behind'; each child is at the heart of what we do.
  • All learners are supported and challenged to become independent, resilient, confident, articulate and moral individuals who are aspirational and ambitious.
  • Exciting, personalised learning provision to stimulate students' enjoyment and love of learning.
  • A culture of rights, respect and responsibility.
  • An ethos which is inclusive, where each individual is valued and there is a focus on well-being and achievement.
  • High quality professional learning for staff, developing strong and sustainable partnerships where innovative practice is jointly developed and linked to educational research and high quality pedagogy.

Where will the school be located?

An all-through 4-16 school is proposed to meet basic need due to the growing need for school places at both primary and secondary level within the area. Hampshire County Council is exploring the option of a new site for the secondary building of the planned new 4-16 free school. Feasibility work is currently being undertaken to look at the option of relocating the new school onto land in County Council ownership at Woodhouse Lane. This land is currently being considered for wider educational and residential development through the Eastleigh Local Plan process. This option for the secondary school is being considered to ensure the delivery of the additional secondary school places for 2020/21 and will be subject to agreement with the local planning authority. Working in partnership with Hampshire County Council (HCC) the Wildern Academy Trust aims to build a new 7 form entry secondary and 2 form entry primary school to meet this basic need requirement.
